I love clothing swaps. It’s a great way to keep stuff out of landfills! And with how fast kids grow, it’s nice to share clothes with other families.
Since the pandemic started, there have been almost no clothing swaps, but slowly they are starting to come back. If you are looking for some swaps in your area, here are a few recommendations:
Check out Meetup. I’m a member of Thread Bumpin’, a clothing swap group in San Diego. They post swap opportunities (swapertunities?) as they become aware of them, and various members host swaps as well.
If you are feeling brave, this article is full of ideas for hosting your own swap (not just limited to clothes).
And as always, here are a few other clothing resources:
Naomi’s Closet is located in Santee, and they provide clothing and toiletries to women in need.
The Sonrise Church in Santee has a clothing swap too! One for kid’s clothes, and another for women’s clothing. Miss Charity’s Closet & Little Blessings Boutique 2nd Saturday of every month at 9:00 am Contact Charity Murphy for more info firstname.lastname@example.org
And Finally, the Closet of 54th isn’t a clothing swap per se, but they do help those in need with new to them clothes. They are open once a few times each month. You can find them on Facebook. They are located at the Calvary Lutheran Church, 3060 54th Street, San Diego, CA. Contact The Closet at email@example.com.
